On-screen lovers Kit Harington and Rose Leslie, better known as Jon Snow and Ygritte to Game of Throne fans, married in Scotland on Saturday, with a host of co-stars in attendance, after four years together.

Harington, whose relationship with Leslie was kept under wraps until the couple made their red carpet debut together in April 2016 at the Olivier Awards, said:

If you’re already attracted to someone, and then they play your love interest in the show, it’s becomes very easy to fall in love.” he told Vogue Italia.

And it’s true – playing lovers on-set can lead to the real thing, as these couples discovered.

When the Twilight Saga became a thing, so did Robsten. The world was happy to continue its love affair with Edward and Bella as we observed the ups and downs of the relationship. Team Edward fans everywhere were astonished when Stewart embarked on an affair with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders in 2012. But the rumour mill is once again busy after the vampire lovers were spotted together at a party for American-French actress Lily-Rose Depp, daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis.

Hollywood’s Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt met while filming Mr and Mrs Smith. Pitt was in a relationship with Jennifer Aniston and the pair hotly denied rumours that they were dating, but have since revealed they fell in love on-set. The pair married after several years together, but their 12-year relationship came to an end in 2016 when Jolie filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences.Angelina_Jolie_Brad_Pitt_Cannes

Sienna Miller and Jude Law started dating in 2004 after they met on the set of Alfie. Law proposed to Miller with a $35,000 dollar nine-diamond gold engagement ring. In 2005, Law’s affair with his children’s nanny became public knowledge and despite attempts to salvage the relationship, including a very public apology by Law, the couple split for good in 2006.

Finding his next relationship on-set is something Tom Cruise has done several times. After splitting with actress Mimi Rogers in 1987, and divorcing in 1990, the actor met Nicole Kidman on the set for Days of Thunder. They married the same year, adopted two children, and split after Cruise filed for divorce in February 2001.

Cruise’s next co-star lover was Penelope Cruz, with whom he starred in Vanilla Sky in 2001. In 2005, Cruise met and married Katie Holmes, publically announcing his love for the young actress on The Oprah Winfrey Show, famously an bizarrely jumping up and down on the chat show hostess’ couch. The couple divorced in 2012 after five and a half years of marriage.

Congratulations to GoT stars Kit and Rose. Together, they can overthrow an empire.
